Omics: Transcriptome analysis by microarray.
Miscellaneous: PubMed=23430347 has a different value for STR 4-2 (19.3) than that of NIST (19.3,20.3) due to a change in the stutter rules (personal communication of Almeida J.L.).
Miscellaneous: PubMed=23430347 has a different value for STR 6-4 (14.3) than that of NIST (15.3) due to a change in the marker motif (personal communication of Almeida J.L.).
